is it the same method as making jam aswell
Unfortunately Debbie you can not make and can lemon curd. It must be refrigerated and eaten within a couple weeks. The high amt of eggs in the curd make it very perishable. It does not freeze well either altho I have read where some folks have done that. Youy can successfully make marmalades. I use about 3/4 oranges and 1/4 lemons in mine. You can also make lemon marmalade.
6 egg yolks
6 whole eggs
3 C sugar
1/2 lb butter
1 1/2 C to 2 C lemon juice (depends on sweetness)
zest from 3 lemons
Melt butter in the top of a dbl boiler, add sugar and beaten eggs. Stir well. Add lemon juice and zest. Cook until thick stirring constantly. Needs to be well cooked and takes at least 30 min. Makes about 3 pts.
